Geography offers a world of opportunity.  We have run some amazing field trips, going into downtown Toronto or visiting sites on the Oak Ridges Moraine.  On our own campus we go outside to learn how to use GPS systems, and also to learn first hand about rocks and urban development.  ("Geography Rocks.")

In class, we often run exciting debates on topics such as whether everyone should be required to drive a Google car, using computers and GPS to avoid accidents.  In grade 12 World Issues we run a mock UN assembly, in which we solve the world's present problems.  Many of our students use these experiences and practice in either Debate Club or Model UN club.
